Red Dirt Marijuana & Other Tastes
Terry Southern
Citadel Underground
By James Calemine

Born in Alvarado, Texas, in 1924, Terry Southern earned two Academy Award nominations for screenplays Dr. Strangelove and Easy Rider. Other Terry Southern screenplays include The Loved One, The Cincinnati Kid, Barbarella and un-credited re-write jobs on Casino Royale and The Collector.

As a novelist, Southern's books include Flash & Filigree, Candy, Blue Movie, The Magic Christian, Virgin, and Texas Summer. Red Dirt Marijuana ranks as Southern's greatest book. A collection of 23 stories, published in 1967, Red Dirt Marijuana contains a wide range of topics and dramatic tales. The story "Red Dirt Marijuana" takes place in Texas where a young boy accompanies the family assistant--a black man--out to an area where a crop of reefer is being grown.

"Razor Fight" tells the story of two brothers diffusing a disagreement with knives. "Twirling At Ole Miss" finds Southern highlighting Faulkner's old hometown with a twist of acerbic humor.  "I Am Hammer" documents the literary style of Mickey Spillane. "The Blood of A Wig" proves as a hilarious story about those who use the blood of a schizophrenic for medicinal purposes.

Terry Southern's Texas upbringing gave him a southern-based childhood, but his literary skills transcended all geographic boundaries in film, literature, music and comedy. Southern kept time with legendary artists such as William Burroughs, George Plimpton, Mason Hoffenberg, Stanley Kubrick, Peter Sellers, the Rolling Stones, The Beatles (Southern appears on the cover of Sgt. Peppers wearing sunglasses between Edgar Poe and Dion), and the Black Crowes.

Terry Southern died of a heart attack in 1995. Red Dirt Marijuana proves a must read for those who want to connect all the artistic dots in American culture for the last 50 years.

A ugg boots clearance recent survey found that one out of five Americans teenage or older want an iPad. No wonder Apple is selling three million iPads a month. It's the fastest-selling single product in the history of consumer electronics. Most buyers are choosing an iPad as a supplement to their current computers -- for watching movies in bed, like I do, or reading books in my easy chair when there's nothing good on TV ugg boots clearance. The iPad pretty much has the personal side of computing covered. But what about the computer side? What about the tasks you do on your laptop or on your desktop computer ugg boots clearance? But I'm convinced that many of you would find the iPad a delightful replacement for a typical laptop computer, whether a Windows PC or Mac, if you mostly use a laptop for three typical functions -- e-mail, social networking (through Facebook, for example) and Web browsing ugg boots clearance. What about occasional word processing? Apple's word processor, called Pages, is outstanding on the iPad. (A bonus: It also works easily with Microsoft Word documents, both reading them and saving them.) If you need software that can show and create PowerPoint presentations, iPad software called Keynote can do that nicely. There's even an Excel-compatible program called Numbers ugg boots clearance. All three of these productivity programs -- called apps -- sell for only $10 each. Getting something equivalent to Microsoft Office for only $30 is surely a steal ugg boots clearance. There are many, either free or a couple of dollars, at the App Store ugg boots outlet. Could an iPad be your only computer? Not for long. It gets updates via free software called iTunes running on a standard computer. When you plug the iPad into the computer using a USB cable, iTunes transfers the updates to your iPad ugg boots outlet. (iTunes is also used to add music, books, podcasts, university lectures, TV shows and movies to an iPad.) But if my experience is a guide, the iPad can function well as a replacement for a laptop. If you buy one, be sure to get the Keyboard Dock and the Camera Connection Kit. Photos look spectacular on the 10-inch screen ugg boots clearance.
